    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Oct 30, 2019

    Wolvenheart may initially present itself as a classic Victorian horror story, but due to its own confusion as to which category it wishes to be associated with by the introduction of time travel, the final product has no meaning when all viewpoints are taken into account. Then add supposedly unintentional spoilers which reveal the path future issues will take and we end up with a series which offers little in way of surprises and leans more toward wondering how they will reveal what we already know. And while the artwork is phenomenal in displaying fantastic layouts of magnificent displays, the confusion of intermixing too many clashing elements results in the reader questioning what genre they are trying to conjure from the chaos. Hopefully the next issue will elaborate the many plot holes within the narrative, otherwise, this series will likely collapse under its own weighty ambitions to present us too much within a limited space.

    Wolvenheart #1 is a fun debut. It isn't absolutely amazing but if you're into this sort of concept, it's well worth picking up and checking out. There's something there with the setup and Castlevania meets Doctor Who mashup. With the basics out of the way, here's hoping future issues deliver a little more excitement. Read Full Review
